Ready to design your book or e-book cover? Expert tips from Cyn

With the emergence of on-demand printing technologies and new marketing strategies for electronic e-books, anyone with a small budget and an idea can produce a book. Whether you are using an on-demand publisher like our own local Lulu or producing an e-book to sell on Amazon, these tips will help you create a cover that looks great online or in print.

Tips will include trade lingo, how to know if you need to hire a designer, the difference between print files and online files, and how to use typography effectively.

Cyn Macgregor, founder and owner of Cynergie Studio, specializes in book cover design and works with traditional publishers, independent authors, and corporations. Her book cover designs can be seen on the shelves in Barnes & Noble, online at Amazon and in homes everywhere.

Cyn is the PechaKucha Night Raleigh City Manager and as such will present PechaKucha style, meaning 20 slides/20 seconds a slide for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. This format keeps the information concise and allows for an open discussion after the presentation. You can reach Cyn via her website at or follow her on Twitter @CynergieStudio.

    We had 17 sign-up and 7 attended. For a free event this is about right. The attendees were very engaging and asked great questions. A sign of some sort on the door would have helped direct traffic since I was the only board member who attended AND the speaker as well! It was a great evening and I enjoyed the experience very much. We filmed the event, so we will post the video later at for those who may want a recap. Get a free eBook of my talk at my website as well. - Best Cyn
